I am going through this phase where I know I need to make a change but I am not ready to commit to it. I’ve plateaued it my weight loss for month and month and months. I work out consistently 3-4 times a week but I am not seeing the change on the scales that I need to see.

I get it, I’m toning and building muscle, but let’s be real, sometimes that is just not enough when you get to this point. Since my fiancé and I are finally together again under one roof, I am definitely in that honeymoon phase and being a little lax about my diet. Things need to change! I need to hit the reset button and I am not sure what that look like yet.

I’d love to hear what works for you? What helps you stay on track?

Eating desserts while talking about losing weight seems like an oxymoron right? I mean it’s hard to maintain a healthy lifestyle when I am surrounded by desserts all the time, but everyone can enjoy dessert in moderation. This is much easier if it’s a lightened-up dessert.

That is what these Skinny Orange Creamsicle Cupcakes come in handy.

Years and years ago when I first started Weight Watchers I learned about diet soda cakes and they were like pure gold to me at the time. Skinny cakes, fat-free Cool Whip and berries. It’s the perfect treat to enjoy when you’re craving something sweet. Since then I’ve made skinny cupcakes in both coconut cream pie and lemon cream pie.

Since you all loved my Orange Cream Pop Cupcakes I made a couple summers ago, I decided that we needed a skinny option. I’ve taken these orange creamsicle cupcakes in a little bit of a different direction. Instead of relying only on diet soda and cake mix, I’ve used egg whites and Greek yogurt to keep the same texture and density of what you would expect from a regular cupcake.

To achieve the orange flavor I’ve used orange juice orange zest and a sugar-free, fat-free orange Jell-o. Just be sure to zest the orange first and then cut it half and squeeze out some of the juice for the cupcake batter.

For the topping, I’ve chosen to go with Cool Whip. You can use either use sugar-free or fat-free, it’s up to you. I prefer the taste of the fat-free one myself. It would also be nice if you topped this off with a little fruit to compliment the cupcake, perhaps a strawberry or something.

    I think you are beautiful just the way you are. I know this will probably fall on deaf ears, but as long as you are healthy and your body is letting you live a full and active life (which from all of your pictures, it sure seems like it), you are doing all you can.
    You don’t need to hit a specific number on the scale–health at every size. You bring so much more to this world than just your physical weight and form. It is the words and creative recipes that you post for the rest of us that make us coming back. It is your smile and brightness that stand out the most to me 🙂
